Amelia Kyambadde Kulubya and the rest of her lineage are actually Rwandese


Dear Ugandans at heart,
 
I can now prove to some people’s highly respected assertion that former Presidential Private Secretary to president Museveni, Amelia Kyambadde Kulubya, and the rest of her lineage are actually Rwandese.  They are real Rwandese.  All evidence for that is to be found in the genealogy of the Tutsi clan, the Mpeewo or Oribi. 
 
The Kulubyas are scattered allover that Rwandese clan!This record has been retrieved from the documents that the wife of Omwami Rwabugiri of Rwanda fled with in 1895 following Rwabugiri’s death and the chaotic succession to the Rwanda throne.  The queen, Muhumuza, fled north to Ruhengeri where she led the Abingi cult but was captured later with many official documents including the genealogy of the Oribi clan.
 
 As you can see in the genealogy, the Kulubyas are all over the major lineages of the Rwandese Mpeewo clan.  I have been reliably informed that the contemporary Kulubyas can be traced back to the last one in that genealogy, known to be the grandfather of a certain Mugambe Ezekiel who was a very famous Gombolola chief in the Rwandese prefecture of Singo, in the commune of Kabuwambo.  That Gombolola chief is the great grandfather of Amelia Kyambadde, I am reliably informed.  I have sent out some feelers to Byumba, in North East Rwanda to confirm that bit of information.  I will let you know in the course of time.
 
 
There is also another questionable claim that the Mugambe Ezekiel Sekiwala might be the Mugamba circled in blue/green but that claim is questionable given that he lived long before the missionaries arrived.  As you can see, it is long after the Kantinti Ssiga that christian names begin to appear.Just as a by-the-way, when the mythical Chief Rwandese, Kintu, arrived in what is now called Buganda, his entourage included the man you see at the top of the lineage, Kaimyebutega.  He was a very important friend of Kintu’s and was later, under Cwa, to be appointed as a judge in all cases that had the possibility of implicating the King himself.  His title was Kibare, which is still an important office in Mmengo officialdom as you know.
 
 Here below is the Oribi genealogy:
 
 

 

In addition, when you go to Rwanda, you will be able to locate the chief estates of the Mpeewo clan.  In the Prefecture of Kyandondo, they have estates in the following communes: Bulaynkole, Kungu, Kibone, Kiryowa, Bugamba, Nkukuba, Bubale and Kiwanguzi near Gitarama.

In the prefecture of Kyaggwe, the Kulubyas and the rest of the Mpeewos have their estates in the communes of Mawoto, Bubiru and Sugu in the vicinity of Gikongoro.

 In the prefecture of Busiro, they have estates in the communes of Nagalabi and Nganji in the areas of Kigali; while in the prefecture of Buddu, their estates are in Kanabulamu south of Cyangungu.  So, Amelia Kulubya is as Rwandese as they all probably come!

 Ah!…and it is not accidental that the Mpeewo man, Mugambe Ezekiel Sekiwala (Amelia Kulubya’s grandfather) was an important gombolola chief in Singo.  Singo was the residence of the Kabaka’s important yirizi (fetish) called Nyonyane Kikulu. The royal rug, Kiyu was also mad in the prefecture of Singo…..Mpeewo was in charge of all that…….ah!…plus the royal spear, Nakawangala.

 I hope we shall not confuse the Prefecture of Busiro with the commune of Bushiru, in Gisenyi where Juvenal Habyarimana hailed from

I have also read somewhere where some people are claiming that since Ms Kyambadde has stated that the Kabbiro of her clan is Kayozi, and also stated that her clan is Mpeewo, therefore she is a narwajja okwota( meaning a foreigner in Buganda)…….for gender balance given that Kayozi is a kabbiro only for Musu.  According to these people, Kayozi, the Kangaroo rat is a junior totem only for Musu.  That is not true.  In fact there are other clans that share Kabbiros or Bubbiro: Ngo and Ngogge both have the Kassimba or genet as their Kabbiro.  There is also the second branch of Mmamba that has the kerekere as their kabbiro, the same as Ffumbe.  The main Mmamba branch has Muguya as the Kabbiro…etc etc.

There are also clans that have opted to amalgamate with others:Katinvuma with Butiko, Crow and Otter, the same with Jackal; Dog (Rev Nakawombe’s clan) with Civet cat etc etc….they become branches but retain their bubbiro.  So, you can have one clan with 2 or more bubbiro….etc

    wala eri. If she’s a Muganda then she should talk and walk like a Muganda. At the moment Amelia Kyambadde looks, sounds, walks and behave like any other Muganda hater. The people of Mawokoota have seen this and so far rejected her. We want to know her positions on many issues concerning Buganda otherwise if I was a Mawokootan i’d rather give my vote to David Tinyefuuza. Isn’t he another Muganda? Isn’t Kakooza Mutale an even better Candidate….. isn’t he another Muganda?. Twala eri your Ameria ….. TWAKOOWA

  4. Joseph Kamugisha,

    Banaffe mwe a’Baganda wawu!! If it is going to take the looks and walks inorder to identify a true “Muganda”, then i guess many are in big trouble when the day of allienation will come! Take a close look at Apolo Nsibambi, Keffa Sempangi, Mukasa Mbidde, Hope Mukasa [the musician] Prince Wassajja, and the list goes on. Can the mentioned few really pass as beingBaganda, if it were just for the looks?

  5. Mayiko Makula,

    The family tree sounds like the one for our Rwakitura man, it starts by some parents (Bakadde) in Buwaya who cannot be ably traced by any real Kiganda names rather than bakadde into Singo which was flooded by our brothers and sisters who are well known as the Serwajja Okwotas.

    The Baganda like my father went there for commercial farming purposes and the cheap labor that lingered around. But now the land was overtaken by the Serwajjas who used to be the laborers now are the land owners, my Dad was allocated land in Kyankwanzi following his land being declared foresty land.

    Kyankwanzi land almost grows nothing, unless goat rearing. The land first went back to forestry until it found its way to the Salim Salehs and the Serwajja who can now claim that they hail from Singo like our Amelia.

    But forestry land did not have ancestral lands with people who are now claimed that they were their ancestors and I still thought God’ s first and last master piece was Adam and the rest of us have ancestors, but our Amelias can only be traced on their husbands.

    Amelia is free to be honest with her ancestry since nobody is chasing her and her likes, the rwakitura man is still in power, but telling fibs & unfounded stories that carry siasa sentiments could lead to a path that may keep her honest.

  6. Edward Nalwamba Nkugwa Kironde,

    Dear friends,

    Please do not doubt that Amelia is a Muganda. She is a Muganda as much as any of us are. But that does not mean she has Buganda at heart. Not all Baganda have Buganda at heart. Remember the saying of the enemies of Buganda: “if you want to destroy Buganda use the Baganda themselves.” It is abundantly clear that Amelia has chosen to be one of those Baganda who have calculated it politically strategic for themselves to side with the enemies of Buganda for the financial benefit they get therefrom. Don’t you remember the fellow who sold away Buganda’s federal suggestion during the constitution making exercise? He is now belching what he ate somewhere in Mityana. I wonder whether he is ashamed of what he did. But often people like those are shameless, just like the despot whose feet they lick, M7.

  7. Dennis Nyondo,

    Bwana Mayiko,

    Well said. But according to the line family tree of our Friend Ameria’s spokesman Alhaji Ahmed Kateregga, contained a lot of vacuum and doubts. The Kulubya’s family have never been an Edible Rat Clan (Musu) whose second totem is the Kayozi,which in Luganda we refer them as Akabbiro. Kayozi is only for the Musu clan not any other clan in Buganda. There that how we get them traped as Basselwajja Okwota.

  8. Aisha Kabanda,

    Denis, who ranks who?

    Just keep your fingers crossed, come 2011 you will see how Ugandans rank MU7. I share sentiments with Kateregga, why send Amelia to Singo where she has not lived for many years!

    Guys, I haven’t been online for sometime but I have heard there is someone else you mistook to be I, sorry, that must be a different Aisha, I associate myself with my views and I find no reason to hide my identity.

    Cheers

  9. Rev. Jessica Nakawombe,

    Well researched. Tell them. People should not call themselves what they are not. It is either an inferiority complex or a superiority complex. Buganda is a well accomodating nation that has embraced everyone and anyone who has Buganda’s interests at heart. Even in the Western countries, if you are are a naturalised citizen and you commit treason, or commit crimes against the citizens, your citizenship is revoked for you are not in the interests of your adopted country. Those assimilated Baganda who are committing treason it is time to uncover them and send them off packing. “Owebbango bwotomuwemukira, osula tewebisse.” Mbu kuba alina ebbango gwoleme kwebikka empewo ekutte. Mbu tubasosola! They should accept who they are first.
    I applaud those assimilated Baganda and non Baganda who have Buganda’s interests at heart. They are very welcome. Anti, “Omusajja/Omuntu gyagenda gyasanga banne.”
    Buganda is rising up once again, and this time the victory belongs to us, for the battle is the LORD’s.
    “For I am building a people of power, and I am building a people of praise, That will move through this land by my Spirit and will glorify My precious Name.
    So I prophesied as I was commanded. And as I was prophesying, there was a noise, a rattling sound, and the bones came together, bone to bone. I looked, and tendons and flesh appeared on them and skin covered them, but there was no breath in them.

    Then he said to me, “Prophesy to the breath; prophesy, son of man, and say to it, ‘This is what the Sovereign LORD says: Come from the four winds, O breath, and breathe into these slain, that they may live.’ ” So I prophesied as he commanded me, and breath entered them; they came to life and stood up on their feet—a vast army. (Ezekiel 37:7-10)

  10. Mayiko Makula,

    May I also add thast these counties were taken over during those Buganda wars, and so many of these people do not claim to be Baganda as you have heard of the Kimeze, Baruli, but these Amelias have taken the claim to another level because the dearailed regime supports this nonsese.

    There are so many in the deralied system serving the govt, when you hear their names on radio or newspapers they have Kiganda names, but meet the guys face to face in those big offices they have Kalekeezi Kayihura’s accent and still can decieve people that they are Baganda

    I was in a certain University where these chaps cannot even construct a luganda sentence yet they were born in Uganda and claim to be Baganda, but cannot explain their lineage when you simply ask them but they speak runyakitara like nobody’s business and actuarry hail from Mbarara. We agreed to disagree with them and reached to that conclusion in a lot of laughters from them.

    Some baptized themselves those names in the 1980- 86 Bushwar some with anticipation of being accepted when they capture power and still carry them to this day abandoning those kalekeezi names,

    One would be enrolled in college or University with those war credentials without any question. We know so many of them. The prevelage worked and who would dare question it if you had an RA number. It was not necessary since we saw these people as liberators, now they are thieves and robbers like that guy who has been killing people stealing their cars called Sempebwa yet his lineage is deeply routed in Rwanda. http://www.newvision.co.ug/D/8/13/733939

    Newvision could not even come to terms to say his freal names, but at least Bukedde tried. Police and security know these people and keep glued to govt interests rather than its people.

    I am not determining whether Amelia is Omuganda or not neither did I claim that I have authority to who should be a Muganda. Just revise your interpretation based on what I wrote and help yourself to substance.

    The big man in Teso is Mukula not Makula, the difference is the letters U & A. You mis-used the phrase resemble and to your resemble by your standards seems like it means the difference, because these two names are really different. Oba oluzungu mwaluyigirawa? Makula means the gifts given to the Kabaka of Buganda, though Mukula means nothing to me. How can you best get taught of these differences?

    I joined this forum when some one I knew forwarded my e-mail, I did not forge my way into this forum to suit you nor myself as if I my e-mail had to reflect my real names as in swearing to this forum the truth so help me God. Wake up, so your utterences that my names confuse you for any tribe, is also totally misleading and misplaced.

    Political tolorence is not to promote greed nor mix siasa with facts, while exchanging democracy with prolonging yourselves in power. Very soon even sweepers in state house will vie for power because they know the master in Rwakitura nad worked closely with him to bring down the country and can now stand for parliamentary elections.

    We have three ministers in Buganda who are not Baganda, we love them, but Amelia is not like these people, her spirit is not for the Baganda we know of and she does not measure up with our three ministers, Mandela, Tailor and Mahmood.

    And in real politics, one man one vote he cannot beat any of those ministers when they stand for political office in Buganda whether she claims to be a Muganda or look up her lineage and keep her self honest. Being a Muganda we could say is the spirit in a person, but amelia’s spirit is non other than our rwakitura man and his bunch of hyenas.

    That is not Buganda and Amelia should better know that, that does not mean that she is not going to win the vote since her group masterd the rigging trick. I must also think that her grandpa who served Buganda may not neccessarily be a muganda to have served Buganda. But the old man must be ashamed of her if he would be alive today, but amelia found her level and it may be something to do with finding her lineage else where rather than in Buganda.

  11. Kaka John,

    Granted, there are so many ethinicities/tribes in Buganda, and who share blood with Baganda. Whether these descendants are Baganda, and whether there still remains a tribe called purely baganda is a matter of common sence. Because even as we talk, the reigning First Prince of the Buganda Kingdom (Prine Jjunju) has genes of non-Baganda.

    But that is beside my point of concern. My point of concern is that, why is it that whenever any FORMERLY known Muganda happens to have a different view/opinion from that of other Baganda (or Mengo for that matter) even on matters of princinple, then the issue of that person’s tribe/ethnicity/lineage,….., name it THEN BECOMES AN ISSUE? The Kulubyas for example have been here for decades and yet no one has ever questioned their origin. We very well remember the issue of the formerly cherished Ssabalangila (Mr Mesweli Mulondo) when he resisted the pseudo ‘federo’ (read feudal) issue in the Consituent Assembly, after realisng that those fronting it were the ones actually who killed it – he was persecuted and branded a MUZIBA from Tanzania. But only after disagreeeing on the federo issue and on principle. Now the Kulubya – Amelia Kyambadde ethnicity issue is coming up because Amelia has decided to express her personal and independent political opinion just like any other Ugandan! And then one goes ahead to claim ‘Baganda are the most accomodative and tolerant ethnic group’???.

    I have said before on this forum, and let me say it again for the benefit of those who may not have read my submission. Even simply reading primary school history books shows that we are all Sserwajja and Nnalwajja Okwotta, because none of our ancestors were created here in this place where we are today. WE ALL MIGRATED HERE in this part of the world, and were all immigrants, which is very normal. And this is unfortunately a historical fact that some of my fellow countrymen and women do not want to hear of!

  13. WE CAN NOT ENCOURAGE ONE TO USE POWER TO HIS OWN AGENDA LIKE MR. MUSEVENI HAS BEEN DOING SINCE HE CAPTURED POWER IN 1986. FEAR NOT , OUT VOTE THE DICTATOR AND HIS AGENT IN 2011.

  14. Yekoz,

    So! What is this article trying to establish? All people in Uganda did emanate from somewhere. In most cases. there is no pure mu-Choli or musoga, for that matter! If it is just a matter of names, there are Ottos from all around Luo Africa and even Germany. Does that make you a non-Ugandan?

  15. sandra kyarikunda,

    since do any of you have a right to dictate who hails from where?please be aware that this kind of stigmatization is what leads to all the ‘isms’, we have in this world.let it be known that none of you are the judges of someone;s character.m especially ashamed of the honorable Reverend’s comments.

  16. Karungyi Mbabazi,

    And so? What has Amelia Kyambadde’s ethnicity go to do with anything? What R U trying to say? Ugh! I think this is utterly stupid. Who the hell cares, if someone is a munyarwanda, or a muganda? What about the fact that they were born and bred here. Uganda, like most other African nations, comprises of a large variety of ethnicities. I thought this blog was for forward thinkers, but it really isn’t. I find this ethnic talk deplorable and shame on all of you that endorse it. Get an education for goodness sake! You people will do NOTHING for Uganda. You are just an absolute farce!

  17. Patrick Mahoro,

    I pity people who go writing things like this considering the fact that we are living in a heterogeneous world. I bet the Americans proved that Obama is not American.

    What constitutes one to be a Ugandan? is it being born here, growing up here or what? People this is hatred of the highest level. Every person in Uganda and more so in the whole world has a point of origin. So what if her ancestors hail from Rwanda. That whole Oribi Genealogy looks a set up.

    And whoever wrote this article, shame on you for this hatred.
    This is giving Baganda a bad name and clearly demonstrates how Baganda have no respect for any tribe whatsoever. Baganda are not the only tribe in Uganda. Stop this Nonsense please.

  18. Male Busuulwa,

    The last time I checked, the only person who has ever determined his parentage is Jesus, Son of God and God the Son..before and since then, nobody has ever determined their parentage…so all this time, energy and money spent on who is who and who is not smirks of primitivity. While other parts of the world are using the internet for development and other initiatives to better their lot, you people are shamelessly using it for all the wrong uses!! And if this is the kind of Diaspora Uganda has, God help us…anyway, we can see it all in Olara Otunnu and Samuel Lubega!! As for Mzee Kashambuzi, your wisdom and other capacities can be better deployed than ranting on myths and distortions of the past. America where you are proud to be, had worse treatment for Africans, which continues even today, despite being THE LAND OF FREEDOM and OPPORTUNITIES…I have lived and studied with African Americans, their plight is worse than what you paint about western Uganda. By the way, stop that derogatory term of Abairu: there are no people called Abairu. They are Banyankore, Bahororo, Bahima. You know it,but are only playing to the psyche of your admirers.

    As a Diaspora, you can do Uganda better than this. Check out the Jews: how they influence global affairs in their favor and their motherland. If you cannot, then keep quiet and enjoy other people’s sweat and let Ugandans at home be….

    ALL THIS KWANIKA OBUZIINA TEBUJJA KUYAMBA UGANDA. TELI YALI ASAAZEWO NTI KANZAALBWE WANO OBA WALI…KA BABE ‘ABALANGIRA’ OBA BA ‘KABAKA’, BONNA BANTU, BALINA OMUSAAYI MUMYUUFU, ERA BW’OBAKUBA ESASI OBA EFFUMU, BAFA. So stop this nonsense of M7 is Munyarwanda, so what? All the stupidity about his parentage, sparing no respect for his departed mother ( does the fellow writing all this crap have a mother???)…if anything, M7 should be hailed as a great achiever against all odds…someone to be born under such circumstances as you are alleging, and go ahead to become a great world leader is no mean feat. We have known ‘princes’ born in wealth and plenty, but dying useless drunkos!. It is this strange attitude that is keeping most people in Uganda poor, believing that they are supposed to be served by virtue of ‘who they are’…SUCCESS COMES FROM HARD WORK AND STRUGGLES…NOT ON A SILVER-PLATTER…NO SHORT-CUTS!! PERIOD!!

    Please do not abuse the hospitality of whoever it is that is ‘hosting’ you: engage in productive work!!!

  19. David Mpiima Mugambe,

    I read with amazement the contents of this article which contains many fallacies..I personally disagree with many things that Amelia Kyambadde subscribes to more so her political affiliation. It is also true that Mawokota where she hails from is a mixed bag of ethnicities and this has historically been the strength of Buganda (though currently at the heart of the well ochestrated plan of reading Buganda’s orbituary by M7 and his cronies). The reason Buganda is partly Buganda is because it is the different amalgamations (bundles) that helped form it. From history, I have never read that there were any settlers in present day Buganda aprt from the Kintu stories and then the off shoots of the Gipir and Nyabong stories and that is how many communities and later tribes developed the world over. Who now will help trace the roots of the Chairman of Makinye Ian Clark or Nyakana in Kampala Central or Ruhindi in Nakawa and many others? I find the research here utterly misleading as the Mpeewo Clan to which I proudly belong migrated to Buganda not from Rwanda but in former Bukedi during Kabaka Mutebi 1’s reign hundreds of years ago and settled in present day Kyaggwe in Bubiro and the clan head contrary to your insinuations is not Kibaale but Kiggye!!! Kantinti is not a traditional judge title in any way but he was an educated member of the Mpeewo clan who was Justice of the Uganda Supreme court not a judge at the service of the Kabaka in any way. that there are familiarities of names in Uganda and Rwanda or any other part of this continent should not be of suprise because I have heard of Mukiibis in Zimbabwe, Zambia and other names in other countries…there are Katos and Nakatos in Japan so should we assume that such people are Japanese?
    It is true that when you now visit Mbale areas you will find many such Mpeewo clan names like Mpiima (my name which in Ateso is closely related to measuring!!!) so will you go claiming that they came from Rwanda or Tanzania (firt blackTZ Chief Justice I am told was Mpiima or something like that!!!!)

    I know it is also true that one can ask to be a Muganda and officially allocated a clan and in the recent past we have seen many such Bazungu given names and clans by Katikkiros on behalf of the Kabaka so to me that isnt a topic of topical discussion. Legitmately it would be absurd to find a Muganda or someone who purpots to be a Muganda to oppose that which is dear to Buganda kingdom unless they have a serious paradigm shift that can be sold to the rest of us….whereas the politics of Uganda has forced people to increasingly become ethno-centric, lets all try to trace our roots and see, you will find there will be no Munyoro, no Muhima, no Mukiga, no Muganda, no Itesot, no Mugwere but migrations and intermarriages which isnt important at this point in time…many of the people on this forum have sired kids with spouses from diffrent tribes and they will suffer the same discrimination you want to create here. Migration history will force many of you to be South Africans (anyone remember Zwangendaba and his north ward movement from Zulu land?, North Africans (Nilotics and Nile-hermites), Ethiopians (the Tutsis and Bahima) and many such categorisations.

    The ‘original’ Ganda clans are only six yet they are mostly small and right now insignificant!!!!!if you dismiss all the other now 50 clans, you will end up being a non Muganda too!!!!Ssabasajja Awangaale.

  20. Lo Enjoyable,

    Now therefore, dear fellow bloggers and intellectuals, let us not subsume ourselves into the simplisticism of tribes and clans. It does not work. With Kulubya Ssenseko havg been one of the chief advisors of the Kabaka who was then given almost the whole of Kampala Central and all the riches that have subsequently accrued to the Senseko family; with rulers in Buganda being from either bunyoro, Luoland or even Rwanda; with ba-Kongo having established roots here; with Bantu having migrated from the DRC; with Kintu (Kundhu) having come from the Elgon mountains – and all the historical fallacies and myths we have read and heard, call yourselves Ugandans. No tribe makes sense in today’s Uganda! God Bless You.

  21. Guess me,

    You are all fools for hating Amelia and being tribalistic….no wonder king mwanga was gay..

  22. anne namagera,

    There are more serious issues to address in Africa than segregation. Socio-economic transformation of our people is key. Otherwise, with such a mindset, stagnation and backwardness will prevail amongst our kin.

  23. Makes me proud that ugandans and rwandeese share ancestry.the “boarders were drawn by colonialists”For me east africans we are one people BANTU
